Categories and Tags: multiselect, rename and numbers
First of all, let me say I really love Unify. I have been looking at it for a year but didn't see the added value. But now that I have a Linnstrument I took the plunge, and man, is it awesome. It is really (becoming) what Akai VIP was supposed to be.
There were some features in VIP that would really improve Unify.
- VIP shows the number of patches available for a particular tag (plugin, instrument, timbre, style and articulation). That would be helpful. Tags that have no patches are greyed out.
- VIP allows renaming of a tag by right-clicking it. This would make it easy, for instance, to rename KEYS to KEY if there are inconsistencies.
- Multiselect is now and OR operator, whereas in VIP it's an AND operator. I believe I read something about that in the past. Is this a design decision? For me, AND would be more useful.
Good points, thank you. I hope to do a major overhaul of Unify's patch database and browser eventually, but this is an enormous job.
Regarding OR/AND: yes, it was a design decision, which turned out to be a poor choice. I've looked into providing an AND option, but there are many ramifications, so it will have to be done very carefully and hence will takes extra time.
